Avocado Green Mattress, a leader in organic mattresses, announces that its Avocado Green Mattress, Eco Organic Mattress, and Eco Organic Kids Mattress have achieved the prestigious OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certification.

Globally Recognised Safety Standard

The OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 is an independent testing and certification system respected worldwide. It ensures the safety of textiles used in various products, including raw materials, unfinished components, and finished goods. This certification applies to all processing stages and any accessory materials used.

To earn OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certification for a complete innerspring mattress, every single component – from the outer fabric to the threads, foams, and other parts – must undergo rigorous testing. This testing ensures these elements are free from over 1,000 substances known to be harmful to human health.

Avocado Green Mattress Sets New Standard in the US

Avocado Green Mattress stands out by achieving STANDARD 100 certification for the entire finished mattress. This makes them the first company in the United States to do so. This comprehensive certification guarantees that every single piece of the Avocado Green Mattress, Eco Organic Mattress, and Eco Organic Kids Mattress is rigorously tested and proven safe from harmful chemicals.

Importance of Mattress Safety

"Mattresses can contain harmful materials, adhesives, and flame retardants. Given the intimate and prolonged exposure we have to our mattresses, it is crucial to consider their potential impact on health," says Mark Abrials, Chief Marketing & Sustainability Officer at Avocado Green Mattress. "The OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certification ensures that every material and component is safe from harmful chemicals, providing peace of mind for customers. We are thrilled to offer another robust certification for these three top-selling mattresses."

Verifying OEKO-TEX® Certification

Customers need to verify the validity of OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 labels on products, especially if they claim to cover the entire product. This can be done easily using the OEKO® Label Check or by scanning the QR code on the STANDARD 100 label. Verification ensures the certification is valid and allows you to review the specific materials covered, confirming the manufacturer's claims. Avocado Green Mattress's STANDARD 100 label is 24.HUS.86422 Hohenstein HTTI.

Avocado Green Mattress: Committed to Safety Beyond Certification

"Earning the OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certification for an entire mattress is a rigorous process," says Ben Mead, Managing Director at Hohenstein. "Avocado Green Mattress has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to safety by ensuring that every component of its mattresses meets the highest standard. This certification is a testament to their dedication to providing consumers with products that are safe for their health."

The company is committed to being a leader not only in the mattress industry but also in environmental and social responsibility. Their efforts to combat climate change, promote social equity, and advocate for sustainable practices go beyond business – they are a call to action for all to contribute to a healthier and fairer world.
